Synopsis:

This book deals with new therapies that use cells such as stem cells to treat, retard, or even cure devastating muscle diseases such as Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), and muscular dystrophy. The text is divided into two parts. The first part contains chapters by contributors establishing basic aspects of cellular therapies, focusing mostly on muscle disorders. The second part deals with specific disorders, especially Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Together, these two parts provide insight into the rapidly changing field of available cellular therapies.

 

Key selling features:

  • Provides a foundation for the use of cell therapies in the treatment of muscle disorders
  • Deals with specific disorders, especially Duchene Muscular Dystrophy
  • Includes the contributions of leading researchers who are actively exploring cell therapeutic methods
